If it's not needed, I'd like to drop it. (Doing so would also close bug
How is the one-true-path handled, BTW? We have some open bugs (64064,
110287) that would like to see it adjusted.

True. I haven't seen any issues yet, and honestly, most other distros
have had these defaults for a while now.

I think if we can get it in before beta, it should be okay. From what I
can see, adding 0.99 should close more bugs than it opens (*cross
fingers*). At least these so far: 43169 14505 80431, and likely open
the door for some of the things people want to add that require 0.99
libraries (e.g. AppArmor's PAM module).
